FTSE Russell and MSCI Indices

Toppan, a global leader in communication, security, packaging, décor materials, and electronics solutions, has once again been recognized for excellence in Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) performance with inclusion in the FTSE4Good Index Series, FTSE Blossom Japan Index, and MSCI Japan Empowering Women Index (WIN).

This adds to a track record of the company’s selection to numerous other ESG investing indices, including the DJSI World Index and the Asia Pacific Index, the S&P/JPX Carbon Efficient Index, and the Sompo Sustainability Index, as well as inclusion in Japan’s Nadeshiko Brands in recognition of efforts to encourage women’s success in the workplace.

“We are very pleased that our efforts to work with stakeholders to drive a sustainable society, ensure transparency in disclosure and support diversity continue to meet the standards of globally recognized indices,” said Fumie Ikeda, company’s General Manager of Sustainability Promotion. “Our multidimensional ESG-related initiatives and targets incorporate elements of the UN Global Compact, ISO 26000, and the Sustainable Development Goals, and are driven based on the Toppan SDGs Statement, the Toppan Business Action for SDGs blueprint, and the Toppan Group Environmental Vision 2050.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
